Overview In the first test of their faith in God, Adam and Eve pray for the sun to return when they experience their first sunset.
A lesson in hope and faith and learning that there are some things in life beyond our control for every child who has worried about what comes next.
Adam and Eve's very first day in the Garden of Eden was perfect safe and unshadowed by worry, doubt, or fear. God's first two people saw morning lift the sun high in the bright sky, and they rested in the contented warmth of the peaceful afternoon.
Before long, Adam and Eve realized that the sun was slipping away. First it began to sink beneath the clouds, to fall behind the mountains, and then the sky became dark, the air cold.
This engaging new story from award-winning author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso explores fear and hope, faith and gratitude in ways that will delight kids and adults inspiring us to bless each of God's new days and nights."

A triumphant story of hope Jan 15, 2004
Adam & Eve's First Sunset: God's New Day by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso is a multicultural, nondenominational, nonsectarian picture book endorsed for children ages 4 and older by Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish religious leaders. It tells the story of Adam and Eve's first day in the Garden of Eden. At first Adam and his mate Eve enjoyed the peaceful afternoon; then they realized the sun was slipping away, and the air became cold. They were fearful and fell asleep waiting for the world to end, but instead came the glorious dawn of a new day, and they thanked God for creating the light and the dark, as well as all that there is. Impressionably illustrated in full color by Joani Keller Rothenberg, Adam & Eve's First Sunset is a triumphant story of hope that is meant to be shared with children from all religious backgrounds.
